Drama

The course offers students the opportunity to combine practical theatre work with complementary critical and theoretical study through a dynamic course of creative learning; students select to specialise in either theatre and young people or contemporary theatre practices allowing them to develop expertise and profile in 1 of these pathways and at the same time to benefit from taking a number of shared core modules common to both courses; both programmes enable students to develop substantial work experience through the course's close contacts with the profession.

Entry requirements

Good Honours degree in drama or other humanities subject areas; theatre practitioners or drama teachers wishing to develop their academic qualifications, and overseas students seeking to deepen their knowledge and experience of theatre in the UK may also be accepted; in certain circumstances, people without conventional academic qualifications, who have significant experience in drama, may be accepted onto the course; all applicants are invited to attend an interview, in the case of international applicants this may be done online; if English is not the student's 1st language, they are expected to have reached a sufficient standard on admission to the course (e.g. IELTS 6.5, with a minimum of 5.5 in each element).

Course modules

Mandatory modules: shaping performance (text and dramaturgy); audience, performer, space; theory into practice; dissertation. Optional modules: writing and performance for young audiences; professional practice in drama; applied theatre and education; contemporary theatre practice in a digital culture; site related performance; specialist performance project.
